Beginning in the latter part of July, through around the 12th of August, the annual astrological event known as the Lion’s Gate Portal happens, with the peak being on August 8th. During this time we are better able to connect with spirituality; including our higher selves, empowerment, and higher states of enlightenment. Orion’s belt and the star Sirius are associated with the Lion’s gate, and the timing happens in the sign of Leo, enriching the energies further with the power of the lion and the sun. The ancient Egyptians, according to many theories, built the pyramids to be in alignment with Orion’s belt, and had a great affinity for Sirius. They associated the great star with the gods Osiris and Sopdet, to name a few. As you can see, this particular alignment has held significance for thousands of years.
To take advantage of the energies of this gateway is simple(ish). The simple part is to intentionally open yourself to accepting the energies coming in through this portal. Allow yourself some time spent in stillness while holding this intention. Now, for the reason that I added the (ish). Another important thing about the Lion’s Gate Portal is that it is a powerful time of releasing any and everything which no longer serves our highest good or encourages our growth. This can mean that things can fall away which will leave you feeling uncomfortable for a while. This is where trust comes in. Not to worry, nothing will happen which isn’t for your best, nor more than you can handle. Knowing that some things and relationships need to be released in order to move more into alignment with our higher selves can be difficult. Just keep in mind that this clearing makes space for that which makes your heart and soul sing and your entire being radiate joy as you begin to manifest bigger and better.
Wishing you all a wonderful period of enlightenment and spiritual enrichment. See you next week as promised to begin a weekly series of posts. Sending lots of love your way!
